Region 13 Singles Championship Finals

Our own Judith Stauton represented Eastern Suburbs Womens Bowls Association and Clovelly Bowling Club by playing against Natalie Noronha representing Sutherland Shire Womens Bowls Association and Engadine Bowls Club. Judith showed great promise during the first half of the game leading most of the way until Natalie found her length and line. At 15 all on the 12th end Natalie put her foot down and went on to win 25/15. The game was played with great spirit and excellent play by both ladies . Natalie will go on to represent Region 13 in the State Championships to be played at Tamworth in March. Judith was supported by a large contingent of her friends on the beautiful varanah of the Double Bay Bowling Club. Congratulations to both ladies.

This event was held at Merrylands and Guildford bowling Club 4-5 March 2021 Carmel Sowden and Gina O’Reilly represented Clovelly Women’s Bowling Club at Guildford Bowling Club in this State Competition. Once the girls negotiated M1, M4 , James Ruse Drive and Parramatta Rd and every back street to get to Guildford the girls will find driving to Clovelly a pleasure. The format was sectional, with the winner of each section proceeding into the knock out rounds.Carmel and Gina played exceptional bowls against highly skilled players from Killara Belrose and Munmorah. Unfortunately Carmel and Gina did not go through to the knock out round. The experience gained from playing in state level competition is in valuable and both girls enjoyed the chance to play at this level.

Bendigo Cup Fantastic Final

Bendigo Cup Fantastic Final

Yesterday at Clovelly Bowling Club we were treated to one of the best Bendigo Cup Finals ever! Roderick James Roper and Scott "C U Jimmy" Irving battled it out for almost four hours to the delight of a transfixed crowd. Bowl by bowl, end by end, the two brilliant players fought with accuracy, strategy and sometimes magic until Scotty reached 31 points first. The Club audience and the passing crowd on the Coast Walk clapped and cheered in amazement as the two players fiercely focused on landing closest to the jack. The very fast and often blustery green changed it's character time and time again causing the men to reevaluate their line but nothing changed their determination to win. At the end of the day everyone was elated by what they had seen and no one could argue that both Scotty and Rick were the winners! (But actually Scotty won...) Well done Fitzy for marking. Many thanks to the organisers and especially to the wonderful Bendigo Bank for so generously sponsoring our Club again this year! Thanks friends!
